Last week, the xx’s Jamie Smith told us told us that the band’s contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack sounds like “despair” and that it utilized a 60-piece orchestra. And he wasn’t lying! The xx released it today, and low and behold, it’s a dark, minimalist composition that finds Oliver Sim and Romy Croft trading off versus and a simple chorus that repeats the phrase “together, to be.”
The Great Gatsby soundtrack is out May 7.
